The lion’s share of German players, having played this weekend, will go on holiday. But not Eintracht Frankfurt, who still have the Europa League final to play for. In the meantime, you need to close out the Bundesliga season with a trip to Mainz. Will there be any motivation for this encounter? On our website, we have the forecast for this match on May 14, 2022. For full information and all odds for the match, look at promo code for 1xbet.
Mainz finish in the middle of the standings
“Carnavalers” could be higher. But its chances (frankly, not particularly high) were crossed by force majeure in the form of a coronavirus outbreak. It didn’t fully recover from that blow. However, Bo Svensson’s men remained high enough. And managed to delight the fans with a couple of wins at the finish line. They even got a 3-1 win over Bayern, who, though, were just celebrating their next league title, and didn’t really struggle. It was more difficult in Berlin the week before. The Old Lady’s response to Widmer’s year was in the 1st half but it was Belle who had the final say. However, even after that, Mainz only climbed to the top of the standings, in 9th place.
Eintracht Frankfurt stay in the Bundesliga by inertia
“The Eagles, by and large, have failed within the championship. Whereas in the last draw, back under Adi Hütter, there was only a place in the top 4 missed out due to a terrible finish, they now have a modest four dozen points and a place below the ‘equator’. But all of that can be compensated with a benefit on the international stage. Oliver Glasner has already surpassed his predecessor: he lifted his team to the Europa League final at the 1st attempt. In the play-offs, he managed to knock out the likes of Betis, Barcelona and, in the semi-finals, West Ham – the English were beaten in both games. Understandably, there was often just not enough strength, especially emotionally, to succeed in the Bundesliga – managing to stay above the relegation zone, at a comfortable distance – and ok.
Eintracht took 4 points in the last draw. And in this one, they already managed to beat Mainz in December thanks to the only goal of Lindström, which was scored before the break. By the way, all those encounters were not particularly spectacular.
Judging by the quotes, experts expect Mainz to finally win. But it does not make much sense, and given the modest statistics of the sides in the last face-to-face meetings, we expect “total less than 3.0 goals” (odds – 1.87).
